Removal from the Volunteer Responders programme

We are grateful for your support to date.

As Volunteer Responders is a digital programme, we need to send you emails to keep you informed of any updates. We also use email to let you know about any new and refreshed volunteering opportunities. There are 3 options available to you.

Stay with the programme as an active volunteer

This means you will still receive email updates and be able to continue volunteering.

Join the reserves

If you want to step back from volunteering for now and join the reserves, regular communications will stop but we may contact you if new volunteering activities are created or if there is an emergency. To join the reserves, log in to the GoodSAM website, go to 'manage my preferences' to adjust the preferences in your profile and click “Put Me on Reserve”.

When you want to return to volunteering, you will need to log in to the GoodSAM website go to "change your current activities" and add the volunteer activities you would like to carry out. At this stage we would ask you to re-read any Getting You Started Guides and fact sheets in case any changes have been made.

Be removed from the programme

If you no longer wish to be a Volunteer Responder, please go to the GoodSAM website, and use the “Manage my preferences” tab to click “Fully remove me”. Please note this process cannot be done on the mobile app, you must log in through the website. Your data will be removed from our systems in line with our privacy notice and you will no longer receive emails. This means that you will also no longer be able to volunteer as a Volunteer Responder and will not be able to search for tasks and shifts on the GoodSAM app.
